Geocache Description:

A somewhat sneaky micro hide at the "back" entrance to Santa Teresa County Park

Welcome to Santa Teresa County Park located in the Santa Teresa Hills ten miles south of downtown San Jose. This diverse 1,627 acre park, rich in history, offers spectacular views from its trails above the Almaden and Santa Clara Valleys. The secluded upland valleys of the park provide a quiet interlude for exploring the natural environment minutes away from the surrounding developed areas.

From San Jose, follow Almaden Expressway until it ends. Turn right onto Harry Road, then turn left onto McKean Road. Travel approximately 1.3 miles to Fortini Road. Turn left onto Fortini Road toward the Santa Teresa Hills. At the end of Fortini Road, turn left onto San Vicente Avenue. A ten car parking area is located on the right about 500 feet from Fortini Road.

Do you have signal here? GPS signal? Cell signal? Signal used to be good here, but recently it's been harder to find.

In the Spring this hillside has the best display of California Poppies in the Bay Area. Come see the show!

The cache is a "beach safe" micro hidden in plain sight. The hide is somewhat evil, but I'm sure you can figure it out!
